Picture perfect beach, with large waves and beautiful waters. The only problem is that the water is rough and has strong currents. Some brave souls would venture into the water but they were taking a risk by doing so as the current and waves are even strong close to shore.

This beautiful beach with amazing turquoise water is right next to the Four Seasons Resort, even though you can still access it without staying there. The beach is a spectacle, with a great view of the sunset and beautiful color water, which is just different than any other beach we saw on Mahe island. The waves here weren't rough, which... More

We stayed at the Banyan Tree, and an early morning walk along the beach is fantastic. As is having breakfast and dinner overlooking this wonderful location.

Such a wonderful beach: the colour of the sea the softness of the sand and the colours are amazing...however there are so many other beaches that have the same characteristics in Seychelles that I found very strange that this one is the number 1 attraction of the island!!!

By far the best beach on the island. A bit tricky to find, but has a shady parking and a nice walk through the forest until its gorgeous view opens up in front of your eyes. Come early in the morning to avoid the heat and for best light to capture the colors. Not for swimming, at least not for... More

One of the best beaches in Mahe. It’s big with white send and beautiful color of the sea. It’s rough for swimming but it’s the best for nice walk and relaxing and enjoying the beautiful sunset.

I can see why so many people like this beach; it is big, picturesque and remote. However, I didn't get that distinctive Seychelles feel about it. On the day we were there, there were quite big waves. My sons enjoyed it because they could body surf but probably not ideal for those wanting to snorkel or wallow in the shallows.... More
